Halloween Safety Tips

Halloween is just around the corner.  To help make sure everyone stays safe we have compiled a list of Halloween safety tips.

Rules for Children

  • Do not eat any treats or candy until they have been examined by an adult
  • Trick or treat with a group and make sure to take an adult with you
  • Never enter the home of someone you don’t know
  • Only trick or treat at homes where you know the owners – only trick or treat at houses with lights on
  • Only  trick or treat on streets that are well lit
  • Only cross the street at the corners – remember to look both ways before crossing the street
  • Don’t  take short cuts through backyards, alleys or parks
  • Carry a flashlight and if possible wear reflective tape so drivers can see you and you can see
  • Make sure someone in your group has a phone to call home if you need to

Rules for Adults

  • Keep your porch lights and exterior lights on for trick-or-treaters
  • Set up a group of adults to patrol your street to discourage speeding motorists, mischief and other crimes
  • Report any suspicious or criminal activity to your police department immediately
  • Use lights to light up pumpkins.  If you are using candles keep the pumpkins away from door steps and landings
  • Keep pets away from doors so that trick-or-treaters will not become frightened
  • Set up a time limit for your children to “trick-or-treat” and designate a specific route for them to take
  • Don’t forget to feed your kids before they go trick-or-treating so they will be less likely to eat their treats before they get home and you inspect their Halloween goodies
  • Avoid all unnecessary car travel on Halloween night

Pet Safety

  • Don’t leave your pet out in the yard on Halloween
  • Do not feed your pets candy on Halloween and make sure chocolate is not within reach of your pets
  • If you have pets use lights instead of candles in your pumpkins.  Pets could easily get burned or knock the pumpkin over and start a fire
  • If your pets don’t like to be dressed up be nice and don’t put them in a costume.  If you do dress them up make sure their vision isn’t restricted and that they can easily move around
  • Make sure your pets don’t dart through open doors
  • Make sure to walk your pets before trick-or-treaters come out for the night
